The syntheses of cyclophellitol and of cyclophellitol aziridine from a common intermediate are described. Optimization of the construction of this building block, previously described by Madsen, enables the synthesis of both title compounds. Azide groups are introduced into both cyclitol cores to allow click ligation to a variety of tags, thus yielding a series of retaining glucosidase probes.
